  Community Screen Forum



Community Screen Forum (CSF) Organisations encourage, support and enable individual communities to run film screenings in their towns and villages. Each Organisation may coordinate as many as 50 or more individual community cinemas. At a national level this network equates to hundreds of venues, many in remote and disadvantaged areas.

CSF Organisations provide a wide range of different services, tailored to the needs of their particular regions and within their funding remit. These include start-up and ongoing training and information for local volunteers, networking opportunities, assistance with film programming, minimum box office guarantees, hire of mobile screening kits, through to provision of the complete screening experience.
